Song: Criminology 2 [ft. Ghostface Killah]
Artist: Raekwon
Album: Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II
Label: unknown
Producer: unknown
Notes: none
Analysis: They don’t make MC’s like Raekwon & Ghostface no more. There are very few rappers in the world who can rhyme so ferociously and make it seem so effortless than Raekwon, and even fewer with as much gusto and unique style as Ghost. From the get-go, the two Wu veterans remind us who they are and where they came from, as this is the sequel to a 1995 Only Built 4 Cuban Linx track, and it is just as rugged and raw as the original. They trade war stories, as Raekwon finishes off his verse: (rhyming is a color / the lifestyle is live, my fly brother / if somethin’ goes wrong we slug somethin’) before the track transitions into Ghostface’s territory: (Gazelle frames is cracked , popped out / neither one of his eyes can come back home, they locked out / all he did was re-up, hustle for kick money / kept bees all around him, thinkin’ he shit honey). This is a real New York rap song, forget what you know. OB4CL2 is out April 7th.
